In 2021, the Acute Care Genomics flagship delivered a comprehensive online education program. Case-based learning principles were applied across online modules and a virtual workshop, with content tailored to a non-genetics audience.
Feedback from the education program highlighted the value of the online modules:
“The pre-learning modules were EXCELLENT and I am recommending them to all of my colleagues.”
“Your training modules were invaluable.”
“…the pre-learning was incredibly well made and I enjoyed it immensely”
The modules have been modified for use beyond the study, and can be accessed below.
